Deepen + Demonstrate Your Microsoft Azure & Azure Virtual Desktop Technical Acumen with Our NEW Enterprise Certification and Curriculum (NME-200 for IT Professionals)
Back in November we launched our certification program for Nerdio Manager for Enterprise that allows IT professionals to show off their Nerdio and Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) skills by passing the NME-200 exam. This 200-level exam is geared towards technical users of NME and catered specifically for those working in an enterprise environment or at one of our many systems integrators (SIs) or end user computing (EUC) partners.
Today, we are happy to release an incredibly in-depth curriculum in support of the exam! This provides the complete package for IT pros and admins looking to get certified. Below are details around what the exam entails and other need-to-knows about the NME-200 certification.
What Does the NME-200 Certification Exam Entail?
Our newly launched curriculum for the NME-200 Certification Exam is intended to give you a comprehensive understanding of Nerdio Manager and the supporting cast of technologies required to run a smooth Azure Virtual Desktop and/or Windows 365-based virtual desktop environment in Microsoft Azure.
The test focuses on the technical configuration and tasks you can, and will, need to execute when deploying, managing, and optimizing AVD and Windows 365. It’s intended to challenge users’ retention of the critical concepts, features, and methods needed to succeed with Nerdio Manager and Microsoft’s desktop virtualization technologies.
The curriculum material emphasizes and explains the “how to” behind all of the topics covered in the exam. Even if users are not ready to get certified, the curriculum itself is a valuable technical training package for any technical user in Azure. It is available at this site. You can read the material online, or if you prefer to make notes and read offline, a PDF is available as well.
Aside from the Curriculum, What Do I Need to Know Before Taking the NME-200 Exam?
Individuals taking the exam will have 45 minutes to answer 60 questions and must achieve a passing score of 80% or above. The exam fee is $80 and you are allowed one free retest if you do not achieve the certification on the first attempt. To achieve certification in one try, we highly recommend reviewing the curriculum in detail and getting some hands-on experience with Nerdio Manager prior to taking the exam.
